Did vampires ever exist?
Vampires never really existed. The belief in them in a superstition. According to old legends, a vampire was the restless soul of a dead person that renewed its life each night by sucking the blood from a living victim.
Vampires were said to dread light and to flee to hiding places at the rise of the sun. The legend maintained that a common method for destroying a vampire was to drive a stake through its heart.
The belief in such superstitions began in the shadowy darkness of man’s early history. To early man the world was a mysterious place, indeed. He believed that storms sicknesses and other unexplained acts of nature that brought human miseries were the work of unseen demons and evil spirits.
Today we now understand the real causes of much that we see in nature. Scientific thinking helps to destroy old superstitions.-Dick Rogers
